i’m enchanted by this quirky sterling and 24k gold plated vegetable jewelry from berlin’s britta knüppel and verena kern for their otto von quast design company. these pieces were all made from real veggies, so each one is unique. choose from broccoli, cauliflower or a variety of peas.

hold on – jewelry is not the only offbeat thing they design! check out their clever porcelain pieces (made with cardboard forms that burn away during the firing process) and funny little tags that can be sewn into your clothes:

    I would totally wear a silver broccoli pendant. What a great find! Sometimes food themed stuff can be so cheesy (like sweaters with ice cream cones, or gaudy earrings with pastel easter eggs on them), but these are really tastefully done. (okay how many unintentional food puns was that?)

    and what’s wrong with sequin ice cream sundaes on the cardigan i’m wearing? 😉
